    latest sword sabre

    the fuller was ground in i know it is possable to forge um but i am not set up for that ...i used a cut off type of grinding wheel in a 4.5 in grinder to cut groove for guide then use a air die grinder to make the fuller the pommel was a lost wax casting i made years ago in a lost wax class the dezign is similar to single edge swords from the 17th /18 th century ... i did not purposefully copy any certan blade just made what i wanted at the time..

    Propane Forge Burning Steel?

    well if you are used to coal propane is a bit different... it will oxidize a lot more! you are probably not burning but oxidizing badly ... hard to tell with pictures on temp ... you are going to have a hotspot on this type of forge unless you do something to difuse the flame more (ribbon burner,or change forge so flame blast swirls ) . hope this helps.
